numeric object with variable modelled.

General Methods

plotBouts

signature(fit="nls"): Plot fitted 2- or 3-process model of log frequency vs the interval mid points, including observed data.

plotBouts

signature(x="mle"): As the nls method, but models fitted through maximum likelihood method. This plots the fitted model and a density plot of observed data.

bec2

signature(fit="nls"): Extract the estimated bout ending criterion from a fitted 2-process model.

bec2

signature(fit="mle"): As the nls method, but extracts the value from a maximum likelihood model.

bec3

signature(fit="nls"): Extract the estimated bout ending criterion from a fitted 3-process model.
